When Mayla's 9 year old cousin Janis stays over night (my wife being his godmother), we Always get out the wooden play trains ("Brio" / Brio-Bahn, anyone?) from the basement. They like to play together, of course, and whenever they can: Nothing beats these railroads ;) It's always my job to come up with new track plans, and hey... I'm a boy, or not?


All at 135mm, f8.

Yesterday's track layout, station occupied :)

Looks like great fun for the kids. And there, they have real trains to ride regularly!

You're inspiring me to try my MF Nikkors more on my Z6.

Sometimes f8 isn't there. This photo is lacking in depth of field in the foreground at f8. I misjudged the aperture needed to get the shot fully in focus. Maybe if I had focused on the fence instead of the trees it would have been enough. Hopefully I'll be back in Grand Teton National Park next week and I can experiment further.

Excellent reason to return to the Tetons (not that anyone needs to fabricate one)! Lovely image.

Barely awake. In fact he's making me tired and I've got chores to do :(. Wish I could delegate some to Vinnie. Taken with the 200mm f/4 micro Nikkor.

Wind died down (except when it was time to release the shutter, of course!) and the sun came out, and so did I.
